SIKESTON -- Federal indictments were handed down last week from the 2008 robbery at a Sikeston business.
The robbery occurred on July 30 at Paul's Jewelry and Pawn in downtown Sikeston. The victim reported a white female and a black female entered the store around 10 a.m. and robbed her at gunpoint. The victim said they stole cash, guns and jewelry after tying her up.
On Nov. 7, the victim saw a black female at Wal-Mart in Sikeston, who she believed was one of the offenders. Officers with the Sikeston Department of Public Safety responded to Wal-Mart and identified the female as Holli Wrice, 30, of Charleston. However, Wrice denied any involvement in the robbery.
ATF Special Agent Dave Diveley began assisting lead detective Jon Broom because of the several stolen firearms in the case. After Wrice was named as a suspect, investigators learned she pawned a large amount of jewelry in St. Louis just days after the robbery.
